NOAA-NSF Climate Webinar Series
The American Academy of Actuaries, in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), is hosting a series of webinars with members of the insurance and reinsurance industries, and with members of the catastrophe modeling and climate modeling communities.
These events are designed to provide a review of the industry's need for model data, tools, and services. At the same time, they will provide another opportunity to consider the state of the science and any gaps in the delivery of data and services to stakeholders in the insurance industry.

ABOUT THIS SERIES
These events build on years of collaboration between NOAA and the insurance industry, including listening sessions, co-hosted with the Reinsurance Association of America, and webinar series hosted by NOAA, where industry representatives emphasized the need for analyzing and blending cat models and climate models to be integrated into industry processes. All these dialogues support a broader effort NOAA and NSF are undertaking to connect our industry partners and academic colleagues to make meaningful improvements to our climate services. These dialogues also support the Academy’s ongoing efforts to examine climate change and climate risk. Our end goal is to enable actuaries, risk managers, and cat modelers in the insurance industry to more easily incorporate NOAA’s climate data into their decision-making.
These webinars are open to all insurance and reinsurance industry-affiliated professionals (including, but not limited to, actuaries, chief risk officers, enterprise risk managers, agents, brokers, modeling agencies, and regulators). Welcome, too, are academic and industry partners who are working on risk-related issues where cat models and climate models would together improve resilience to hazards and reduce risk across the nation.
